Expanded Metal

Expanded metal products are the most versatile you will find for almost any industrial, commercial, interior design or architectural applications. These products allow excellent control of light and circulation of air. They also provide clear visibility in applications such as overhead walkways, maintenance platforms and other areas where visible security might be necessary.

Expanded metal can be made from steel plates, stainless steel plates or aluminium plates. They are simultaneously slit and expanded in a cold drawn operation to form diamond shaped openings of uniform size and thickness. Because of this, this makes expanded metal an ideal light weighting solution whilst also maintaining strength! Today, we are the only manufacturer in malaysia that can manufacture expanded metal with a thickness up to 8.0mm. Besides that, we can also produce a very wide range of mesh sizes ranging from a micro-size mesh of SWD 2mm x LWD 4mm to a macro-size mesh of SWD 100mm x LWD 200mm.

Advantages of Expanded Metal:

  • expanded metal permits free flow of light, heat, sound & air.
  • expanded metal mesh won’t unravel when cut, unlike woven wire.
  • available in a variety of mesh configurations and decorative patterns.
  • expanded metal is a formidable barrier when used in security applications.
  • easily fabricated, finished, installed and formed.

Expanded Metal Terminology

STANDARD EXPANDED METAL
Standard expanded metal as it comes from the press. The strands and bonds are set at a uniform angle to the plane on the sheet. This gives added strength and rigidity, as well as skid-resistant surface.

GRATING
Grating is a standard expanded metal pattern produced from heavier gauge low carbon steel plates. Strands and the openings of grating are considerably larger than other meshes. It is ideal for use wherever a strong, durable, lightweight surface is needed. Although used primarily for pedestrian traffic, grating can accommodate heavier loads if properly supported.

MESH SIZE
Actual dimensions SWD and LWD. Measured from a point to a corresponding point on the design shown.

SWD
Nominal dimension Short Way of Design.

LWD
Nominal dimension Long Way of Design.

THICKNESS
Gauge thickness of metal expanded.

STRAND WIDTH
Amount of metal fed under dies to produce one strand.
